Squier, the most affordable entry point into the Fender family, has added three new bass guitars to its Affinity Series – one of which is a spotlight-stealing six-string Jazz Bass VI model that costs less than $350.

Sitting just above the firm’s Sonic range in price and specs, the Affinity series aims to give that little bit more to beginner guitarists (or players on a budget), with the Jazz VI bass making its surprise debut in the series as part of this latest release.

A freelance writer with a penchant for music that gets weird, Phil is a regular contributor to Prog, Guitar World, and Total Guitar magazines and is especially keen on shining a light on unknown artists. Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
